Instruction and clinics are given in swimming, cycling, running/wheelchair pushing, and transition. A paratriathlon 101 session also is offered to help educate participants about the opportunities in paratriathlon, from grassroots opportunities to paralympic pipeline.

Dare2tri will provide adaptive equipment, wetsuits, handlers/guides, top coaches and mentor athletes. Travel and lodging stipends are offered to any qualifying injured military or veteran.

2017 Injured Military Camp Impacts

Thank you so very much! Last weekend was one of the best weekends I have had since my accident. You are amazing! I am so happy to have had an opportunity to go to camp and meet all of the wonderful co-founders, coaches, staff and volunteers. Thank you for caring enough to want to change the life of others through physical activity and making everything accessible for us. I truly appreciate it.
